PGI's Interceptor[TM] Natural Gas Sampling System is a low cost composite sampler used at points of custody transfer; a well accepted alternative to much more expensive natural gas chromatographs.
The results of this study extend the utility of the modified drop-box weir and Coshocton wheel composite sampler. This study documents the good performance of the drop-box weir/Coshocton wheel sampler system that can be used under a wide range of weir approach conditions from concentrated jet flows to erosion plots and small watersheds.
For ideal composite samplers, a linear equation relates sample volume to corresponding runoff volume.
